Attempted robbery at downtown KFC

Royal Cayman Islands Police said a man carrying what appeared to be a firearm entered KFC on Shedden Road, George Town around 8.20pm Thursday and tried to rob the place.

According to witnesses in the store, he pointed the gun at staff and demanded cash from the register. Officers said staff explained to the suspect that they did not have the key to open the till, at which point the man ran away.

No property was reported stolen, no shots were fired and no one was injured in the incident.

The suspect is described as a male 5’6″ tall, slim build, about 30-35 years old with a dark complexion and short shaven hair. He was wearing black pants and a black shirt. His face was coveredĀ  by a dark coloured bandanna.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact George Town CID on 949-4222 or Crime Stoppers 800-8477.

    Da wa u get is Caymanian slang. Not dropout. If either of you are Caymanian and under the age of 30, then you should know that.

    By da wa u get, I mean that the robber deserved that outcome. He is a lazy person with a sense of entitlement who doesnt feel like he should have to work at an honest job. Hence, a locked till is what he deserves.

    Dont be so quick to accuse others of ignorance.

  3. If these armed robberies are indeed part of a gang initiation as has been rumored, then the RCIPS needs to talk to the appropriate US authorities and understand some of the proven strategies for dealing at that level.

    These morons have the IQ of a pumpkin seed and yet they are free to terrorize law abiding citizens which many will be scarred for life. That aint right.

    It shouldnt be that dificult to figure out and put an end to this nonsense.

    Swallow your pride and get some outside help STAT.

    A security guard with a 45 Glock would be most effective and the on-the-job training is a bonus.

    Point shoot bang, no more bad guy. Cleans up the gene pool too. Double bonus.
